Facebook launched Fake Checking Program against viral fake posts

Facebook is the world's largest social media platform today and the WhatsApp is also owned by Facebook. The fake posts on Facebook have been lead to riots in many places due to these fake news and many people have also come to know. Now the question is that who share these fake news on Facebook.
Due to complaints of fake news and rumours viral, in such case, Facebook has partnered with Britain's Independent Charity Full Fact. A media report claims that after this partnership, the social network will launch a fact-checking operation against Fake News and Posts.

In the past, 'The Guardian' has reported that under this partnership, Facebook will fact-check and review the entire audacity of the content coming to the social network. The team of fact-checkers will check viral photos, videos and facts on Facebook and ensure that all of them are either false or rumoured.
Right now it has been started in the UK. Such users will be informed that their post fact-check has proved to be false and rumoured. Although Facebook is not working on the system to prevent users from sharing or reading this content. According to the report, Full Fact will be Facebook's slow-fact checking partner for the time being.

Apart from this, the Facebook's Newsfeed Algorithm also reduces the reaches of false content and prevents it from spreading. Fact checking is a time-consuming task, and the team that is looking for it will be examining it at its own level. Based on the feedback received from the program, further steps will be taken from the company.
